An Hour In France


_One Country, 700 years of music, in one hour.
An Hour In France takes you on a musical journey across a country with a rich and complex musical history. Countertenor Joe Levy is accompanied by acclaimed pianist Peter Adcock for a series of concerts that explores the classical tradition of French music and how it evolved between the Late Medieval period and the 20th Century.

What’s more, all this takes place within one hour, providing audiences with a lively snapshot view of French classical music that contains plenty of surprises.

From the Baroque decadence of Lully, to the romantic lullabies of Faure, familiar melodies will be set among lesser known works, each telling a different story. Some recount lost love in the Renaissance era, while others are imbued by the legacy of the colonial era and the industrial revolution.

Joe’s performances go beyond performing the pieces and into the realm of history and storytelling, so you will have the chance to not only learn about the music you hear, but also the social history in which these songs are set.
